Linkin Park Set to Debut New Song in "8-Bit Rebellion" iPhone Game

January 7, 2010 12:00 AM ET

Linkin Park will join the ever-growing arsenal of rockers with their own iPhone apps when the Minutes to Midnight band unleash their new touch game Linkin Park: 8-Bit Rebellion later this month, Mike Shinoda's blog revealed. According to Shinoda, the premise is that the gamer has "been chosen by the rebellion to solve a mystery. Items have been stolen from the six leaders of the rebellion. Collecting these items is the rebellion's only hope to thwarting the plans of the evil PixxelKorp."

Doesn't sound overly complex, but the real prize awaits the player at the end of 8-Bit Rebellion: Shinoda says a brand new Linkin Park song will greet fans upon completion. As Rolling Stone previously reported, the "Breaking the Habit" gang has been working on their "genre-busting" new LP for some time now, with one new track called "New Divide" appearing in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
